The best router for most people is the Archer C7 ($100). It’s a dual-band 802.11ac router, meaning it can run both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks, and it supports the fastest Wi-Fi speeds of every wireless device you can buy, including the MacBook Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the brand-new iPhone 6s. The Archer C7 is faster over longer distances than most routers that cost $150 or more, and it’s the best value of the more than two dozen routers The Wirecutter tested in the last two years.
It’s one of the less expensive performers, In return for that price, web surfers get a solid, consistent 802.11 ac signal. The Archer’s key strength is its powerful antennae, which beam both 2.4 GHz and 5GHz signals throughout homes.
